we escaped for the weekend in celebration of dad’s birthday. it was a last minute getaway that came together within four days and managed to stay within our very limited budget. praise God!
we traveled to a near-by getaway that seemed like we were in another country—Castillo de Amorosa in Napa, CA.
it was a first for us, on many levels. we haven’t taken a weekend getaway (without kids) in 6 six years, first trip to napa as a couple, and first wine tasting.
we were a king and queen for the weekend while rose manned the home front.
our trip started with sun. Mass (in the Extraordinary Form)at the castle’s chapel.
then we ventured on for a full tour and wine tasting. we were blessed to have a semi-private tour. there was only one other couple in our group. dad and I did not want to leave the authentic, medieval castle.
we laid low after our visit to the castle. we had no plans and winged the rest of the trip with whatever our hearts desired--simple food and relaxed days.
we thoroughly enjoyed discussing our date night questions.
it was a blessed weekend. we give all thanks and glory to the GOOD LORD!
Happy Birthday, my love. May you continue to seek the intercession of the Holy family and surrender to His will.
